grassroots organization that the obama for america team use. now, they can't coordinate with the white house, wolf, on this, but they are using all of their apparatus to get out their grass root supporters because what they are trying to do is mobilize voters in much the same way that the nra has done over the years, which w want something done. on the other side is the nra, which has a huge grassroots organization. they are trying to mobilize their own voters. you saw that e-mail. we spoke yesterday about this provocative ad talking about the president's children are protected by people who bear arms. so you can be sure that the nra is going to continue to be just as aggressive as the obama supporters on all of this. >> you know, the reaction from republicans to what the president did yesterday, signing 23 executive orders, if you will, has been very intense. rick perry, the republican governor of texas saying this. the second amendment to the constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president. at least

then part two, an obama patented social immediate y'all campaign including twitter outreach and a new page on the white house website titles now is the time. part three convincing lawmakers on the hill. that's probably the toughest part. the biggest challenge by far with the right already signaling an uphill climb at the capital. >> the emphasis for all of this is the shootingcapital. this is stuff they have always wanted to do and now this has created the political climate to pursuit it. >> you have to convince the congress that this is the right thing to do. you can't force them to do it. you shouldn't force them to do it. it's democracy and you can make good arguments. >> adding bilt to the read beat rhetoric from the right t national rifle association, the nra ramping up its fight and defending its new ad featuring the president's daughters. >> it wasn't about the president's daughters, what it is about is the fact that this whole debate is how to keep children safe. we believe that every parent ought to be able to be comfortable knowing that their children are safe and if tha

, rush limbaugh accused the president of using those kids as human shields. let's listen. >> obama uses kids as human shields. he brings these kids supposedly who wrote letters to the white house after newtown. it's going to be very difficult, very difficult to oppose it. you've got these little kids there. they don't want to die. and how can you not listen to them. you've got to do something. that's the picture. >> what kind of -- >> is he on or off his meds again? >> i don't care about his meds. i care about the lack of any kind of human approach to this problem. kids were mowed down by a deranged killer. he had a weapon that was particularly dangerous and particularly useful in a sick way to somebody who wants to mow people down. semiautomatic bushmaster with clips on it. this is a problem we've got to deal with. there could be different ways, but to make fun of those kids, i don't want to die is some kind of joke? that's sadistic. >> rush limbaugh needs to -- >> i don't know why his viewers ride around in cars and trucks doing their jobs, regular people. that's wrong. stop that. we

a big fan of the second amendment, never has been. you will recall, bill, president obama's first chief of staff, rahm emanuel once said, never let a crisis go to waste. newtown and aurora, certainly were crises. and i think they're being leveraged by this white house to at least begin an assault on the second amendment. essentially what the president did was sign these 23 executive actions yesterday and pass it off to congress, the outstanding question of of course is hough much this can actually get through congress. bill: you're right about that. come back to the original, question, doug. what do you think about the second amendment? >> i think the president made it very clear yesterday that he supports the second amendment. i think to talk about reasonable controls on assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and universal background checks makes sense and to do relatively noncontroversial actions through executive orders like enforcing existing laws. allowing the cdc to study the root causes of gun violence makes exact and good sense. i think this is just a shiboleth from the
